Default Head stud removal/instal

I'm new to this forum guys, welcome me

So i bought my 87 Saab 9000 turbo about a month ago with 124xxx milesnot knowing that the headgasket was about to blow. (previous owner failed to inform me this) I'm 18 as of right now and im doing this all myself. I have good knowledge of what I am doing so I'm confident im my work. I ordered my full gasket set from rockauto.com and my new headstuds while i was there.

So basically i need to know what sequence the studs come out and back in without the chance or warping the head. I will be getting the head milled to ensure the straightness of the head. If there is anything else i should know before it goes under the knife let me know!!

Thanks guys for reading!!

Default RE: Head stud removal/instal

start on the studs in the middle and work your way out. ifyou dont oneside will be tootight and the other side will have a good sized gap and thats not good.
